|You're Happy If You GNO It - Geoff Weiss|
GNO/ME is an open source UNIX-like extension for the Apple IIgs. Version 2.0.6 was released in 1999 (presented at KFest for the very first time in 2020) and has been often described as a central component to what would be included if GS/OS would have advanced. Topics covered by Geoff Weiss include how it compares with modern UNIX operating systems and what it will take to port code. Video courtesy Ed Eastman.

|Apple II Forever: Ewen Wannop's tribute to Geoff Weiss - Ewen Wannop|
Each year, the KansasFest committee bestows the the Apple II Forever award upon members of the Apple II community for their contributions to the platform. At KansasFest 2012, telecommunications expert Geoff Weiss received this message from Ewen Wannop, creator of Spectrum, in recognition of his status in the community. (Unbeknownst to Ewen, who was not on-site at the event, he too received an award.)
